A big welcome to all our new and returning students! Our doors will open on Wednesday morning (September 6th) at 7:45 am, with the homeroom bell at 8:05 am.
Grade 7 students will proceed to the cafeteria for a brief assembly and sorting into home rooms. Grade 8 and 9 students will find their home rooms from posted lists, and will head to their assigned rooms.
The day will conclude at the regular time, and students are advised to pack a lunch in case the cafeteria service is not available.
See you in school!
